Hello, I have an SI Coupe and I'm looking for side skirts. I was wondering if anyone knew if side skirts listed for the sedan would fit well/perfectly on the coupe? The cars have the same wheelbase so I'm thinking the area for the side skirts would be the same, but wanted to know if anyone has tested this before I order a pair of skirts for a sedan and possibly waste my money. I'm up for cutting some plastic off to make them fit too. If anyone has some awesome side skirts on their coupe, I'd love to hear it!

Well, I purchased some IKON style side skirts off Amazon and am getting ready to install them soon. They seem to fit fine. So I’d say any side skirts marketed for the sedans, should fit the coupes too. I’ll be sure to post pictures once they’re installed.

Did you ever install the side skirts? If so, may you post some pics and did you have any difficulties? TIA!

I’ll set a reminder for myself to take and upload pics after work. The only real difficulty was finding the right hardware to use as my skirts didn’t come with any. I used some Doorman plastic clips I bought at a local auto parts store. They fit great, I’ll update this post with a part number later. Fitment is probably 90% there. Have to be pretty precise when screwing the skirt into the rear fender area or it bows out slightly. Like I said, I’ll post pics that show all this later. Install only took 20-30min after taking a few days to find the right hardware. Overall, for $100 skirts that weren’t advertised to fit, I’m happy with them.

EDIT: found some pictures in my camera roll. Not the most flattering, but they show the final product

EDIT 2: I took some better pictures of some of the work the skirts needed to fit well, and some of the flaws. I use mudguards with my skirts. The mudguards needed a 4x2ish rectangle cut out of them in order for the skirt to fit (in picture below). The skirt also has a slight gap near between it and the body of the car near the front fender (see attached pic). There is also some slight bowing on the drivers side near the rear. The hole I made to mount the skirt in the rear was slightly off, causing the skirt to be bowed out (see the attached pics of the drivers side and passenger side to see what it should look like). Lastly, the push pins I used are a house brand. I’ve attached a picture of those as well.
